Not the usual Camino book
On the Pilgrims Way of St. James Jane seeks peace but finds terror
“Recognizing the locations where things happened along the Camino gave me the feeling I was back there again.” Laura
“I read many Camino books before I walked it myself, but they were all information and guide books. This was totally different and gave me a shiver when I think that I once walked along there. Quite a surprise and quite a thrill.” Hannah

How this book was born
I was at a turning point in my life when I decided to walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela and I researched a lot of books, telling me of what to pack and not to pack and how to look after my feet. Lots of useful tips and the choice of books was endless that I was overloaded with peoples experiences and advice. Then, in the Camino Forum, an American pilgrim wrote: ‘Isn’t there anything to read except guide books? I would love to have some sort of thriller to take with me.’ Then I thought: That’s it! I’ll do it!
Was I always a writer?
I started writing during my eleven plus examination. We were supposed to write an essay and my pen wrote words as if it had verbal diarrhea. I failed and was not admitted to grammar school. My father insisted I write an essay a day and gave me boring subjects to write about, such as ‘My home town’. One day he told me to think of something myself.’ So I wrote ‘A Day In The Life Of A Bus Conductor’. Later, he was furious. My mother showed it to a friend who showed it to her daughter. Later I heard she copied and submitted it as her own work and was admitted to the grammar school that had turned me down. Nevertheless, I continued to scribble for a hobby, leaving a trail of half finished manuscripts behind me. Finally, I pulled myself together and dived into ‘Fatal Camino’.
This is not your normal Camino book. It takes you to real locations, where dreadful things happen.
The Camino de Santiago is brimming with history and gossip. In this book you will receive more than a few drips.
If you have ever walked the Camino, after this book you will see it through new eyes and shiver.
